January 2007: Comfort Zone ONLINE
I hope you are all warm enough, body and soul, and comfortable in all ways during this time of year when the days grow longer but the weather does not yet quite prove to be spring.
Feedback Please. Now that we are launched into a new year with some new technology for the newsletter, meaning that more of you should be receiving it, I would like some feedback. Specifically, click here now or after you read this issue and type Yes or No, in answer to the question, "would you like the newsletter to continue?" A Yes if you would, a No if you don't care or if it is not of particular value to you. Comments or topics you would like covered are also welcome, but the Yes or No would suffice.
Your feedback will help me plan how to use my time. I am engrossed in writing two books, Psychotherapy with Highly Sensitive People and Winners and Lovers: Dealing with Love and Power in All Your Relationships (or some such subtitle). Each is a big project needing to be finished by this summer, and more things like it are approaching. I enjoy writing this newsletter because I feel more in touch with all of you, especially when I am not doing very much public speaking. But I know I can be a bit esoteric in these articles, and I do not want to be doing a monologue to an almost empty theater...
Yes, I can see the statistics on how many click on an article, but that does not mean you read it or valued it. If it helps you answer, glance at the list of past articles to see how many you read and liked. Then let me know, yes or no. No flattery, please. Just how you feel.
In This Issue:
What HSPs See is a description of some impressive research about our brains working differently, being less affected by cultural bias, than non-HSPs on a simple task.
My more or less practical article for this issue, What HSPs Can Give and Get from Animals and Babies, is about how HSPs relate to animals and babies--what it does for us and for them.
Finally, there is a review of a book on evolution by a biologist and a philosopher: Unto Others: The Evolution and Psychology of Unselfish Behavior. You may never read the book, but it has important implications regarding what HSPs tend to believe about themselves and others.
Again, don't forget to send me some quick feedback on the newsletter in general.
May you soon see a glimpse of spring, inside or out.
